By JAY REEVES
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Nearly 150,000 homes and businesses in the southeastern United States have been without power following a powerful storm that left at least four people dead. The National Weather Service said early Friday that a storm system was expected to strengthen as it moves north, bringing snow, ice and rain through the mid-Atlantic region. The front caused flooding in many places in the Southeast on Thursday. Five storm-related deaths were confirmed in Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee, with others under investigation. Virginia's governor declared a state of emergency as heavy rain and flooding displaced more than 500 people.
